Try to connect again. If it still fails, try reducing the maximum modem port speed, which can overcome some line noise problems.

To change the maximum modem speed (XP):

  1. Select Start, then Control Panel.
  2. Select the Phone and Modem Options.
  3. On the Modems tab, click the modem that you want to configure, then click Properties.
  4. On the Modem tab, in the Maximum Port Speed list, click a lower speed for the modem.
